Welcome to Holmfirth artWEEK
The Holmfirth Artweek Committee invite you to apply for the 2013 Exhibition at Holmfirth Civic Hall. The exhibition starts on SUNDAY 7th JULY 2013. Holmfirth artWEEK is open to all artists, both amateur and professional. Each person may submit up to two pieces. There is no selection process for the public entries, but space is limited so an impartial draw is held to select each year's exhibitors.
Holmfirth artWEEK is both proud and privileged to support MacMillan Cancer Support who work hard to improve the lives of people affected by cancer by providing practical, medical, emotional & fincancial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care.
The artWEEK featured artist for 2012 was Rosalind Annis - a well established pastel artist living and working in the Holme valley. Her subject matter is diverse with her focus on creating a painting using the depth and vibrancy of colour that can be achieved using pastels. She enjoys using the contrast of light and shade to create her paintings.
artWEEK is a local event with a national reputation. Most of the exhibitors are from this area but visitors come from all over the country to view and to buy. It is astounding how much artistic talent there is locally, it is this that makes the event such a success, and brings so many visitors to Holmfirth every year.
As artWEEK is a fundraising event all work submitted must be for sale. A commission of 20% is charged on sales in the Exhibition, Market & Fringe and all proceeds go to Macmillan Cancer Support. To view all artWEEK facts and figures click here.
